|Sometimes anxiety can tower over you.|
Our alarm went off at 6 am for some reason (certainly not on purpose!). After that, there I was in "The City that Never Sleeps," unable to get back to sleep.
I felt chest pain, unease, discomfort... and I had no idea why.
One of the weirdest parts about having anxiety is that sometimes you can feel the pain and discomfort of worry without actually having a target for your worries.
Think about how you feel when you're waiting to hear terrible news... Maybe you're getting back a test you don't think you did well on, or your significant other said, "We need to talk." Now imagine that feeling without an identifiable reason behind it. How do you talk yourself out of it when you don't even know what it is?
It's a tragedy, to be afraid and not know why you're afraid. Unfortunately, sometimes that's just the nature of having anxiety problems. The best thing that you can do sometimes is just remember that cliche but true saying: This too shall pass.
